Robbie Keane has backed Tottenham to finish in the top four.

Thursday’s defeat by Manchester City left Spurs five points behind fourth-placed Newcastle having played a game more than Eddie Howe’s side as pressure mounts on Antonio Conte.

The Italian’s long-term future is in doubt with no move yet on a new contract, while Harry Kane has just one year left on his deal.

For the club to have a realistic chance of keeping both Conte and Kane, ensuring they can offer Champions League football feels paramount.

Yet Keane has backed his former side to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition, even without spending big in January.

“I think with Tottenham they still have a really good chance of getting into the top four,” Keane told Betway.

“They don’t need to go big this month, the players they have are good enough.

“Certainly after beating Crystal Palace 4-0 recently they showed how good they are when things go to plan.

“Son Heung-min got back in the goals at Selhurst Park so he should get more confidence from that and Harry Kane is on fire too.

“I think if those two lads fly they will do well. They also need to get their injured players back fit and that will help the squad.

“Richarlison, Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Moura and Dejan Kulusevski are all great players and are greatly missed when they are out.

“But I believe Tottenham will finish in the top four.”
